A woman has revealed she had one of the shortest tenures ever in a job - having quit on the first day after feeling like the vibes were off.

Few people will be lucky enough to love every single job they have across their career, with most coming across at least one workplace that isn't the right fit for them for whatever reason.

There can be many reasons why a person wants to quit their job - from taking some time out to travel, simply outgrowing the opportunities at the company and wanting to do something different, or because of more serious issues such as it being a toxic environment for them to work in.

One TikToker has revealed that she decided to hand in her notice on her first day after not being happy with the "vibes" she was getting from her new employment.

The TikTok user, who goes by @skyeamane, shared a short clip telling her followers: "I got a job at Ulta and quit a day later because nobody introduced themselves to me and the vibes were atrocious."

She zoomed in on her T-shirt during the clip which had the slogan: "I put the hot in psychotic", before pouting at the camera as music played over the top.

In the caption, she also joked: "it's giving unemployed #helpme #socialanxiety".

Given that people usually spend more hours at work than doing anything else, it's no wonder that working with difficult people can become draining very quickly.

And while quitting on your first day is not always the smartest move, sometimes getting out early can save a lot of stress down the line.

While she claims her colleagues didn't make an effort to make friends with her on her first day, there could be some legitimate reasons why, such as it being an overwhelmingly busy day or they may have had some social anxiety of their own to contend with.

It's always a good idea to give a job a chance, however, as one day is not always indicative of how things will be long-term at the company.

Also, it then puts you back on the job hunt and wouldn't look too great on your resume - if you even bother to include that one-day tenure on there at all.

It's also not great to burn too many bridges if the job in question is in a field you'd like to have a long-term career in, as industries can be pretty small and could affect your chances of getting your dream job down the line if you end up crossing paths with the same people again.

However, if it's just a casual job that you're not planning to spend years of your life in, it's probably not going to hurt to prioritize your own peace over staying in a role you're not happy in.
